Messi and Benzema

According to most, the biggest contender for this year’s Ballon d’Or is Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema. The 34-year-old French star has spent a season like a dream. Benzema is the unwritten leader of the Los Blancos attack after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

After winning La Liga with four matches in hand, Real Madrid also won the title in the Champions League by defeating Liverpool. And Benzema, the team’s ‘number nine,’ was the charioteer of the royal Madrid’s journey to excellence. So Lionel Messi thinks that this time Ballon d’Or is getting Benzema.

44 goals in 47 matches. The league’s top scorer with 28 goals in 32 matches in La Liga. In the Champion League, he scored 15 goals in 12 matches. In addition to the goal, he has swallowed 15 times. These are Karim Benzema’s statistics this season.

The French star, who has never scored more than 32 goals in a single season in his career, has now surpassed himself. It is hardly said that you have reached everyone if you tell yourself. The statistics say that Benzema’s fame is bigger than that.

Messi, the former star of Real Madrid’s arch-rivals Barcelona, ​​is fascinated by the performance of Big Benz. Messi, a seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, thinks Benzema is getting the Ballon d’Or this season. The Frenchman, who has never been in the top three before, has no rivals. He has been decided in the Champions League final.

“There is no doubt about it,” said Messi, “Clearly that Benzema had a great season, and it ended with a Champions League title. His role in every match from the Round of Sixteen was crucial. I don’t think there should be any doubt about it (Ballon d’Or) this year.’

Messi, who has won the Ballon d’Or seven times, is the last Ballon d’Or winner. Apart from Messi and Ronaldo, Madrid won this prestigious award in 2016. Messi beat Lewandoski in the 2021 Ballon d’Or. However, there was controversy at the time over the prize.
